Lec36 Fill In Notes Solar energy: Max current flow: 2.5 x 10 21 electrons per second [e/s] Def: 1 ampere = 1 A = 6.241 x 10 18 e/s Distribution of photon energy (approx) ~ Weibull (3,3) where x is energy in 10 -19 joule Example: What percent of photons have energy < 1 x 10 -19 J? Let x = 1 P(X <= 1) = 1 – exp(-(1/3)^3) = 0.036 For PV panel power Recall ( from physics ): Power = Current * Voltage Example: Suppose current = 1 A/m 2 , voltage = 0.5 V Then P = IV = 0.5 watt/m 2 Wind energy Recall ( from physics ): Energy = Power * Time [e.g., watts * hours = watt-hours]

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
